Lots of kids will be heading back to school this week, and some will be starting for the first time. Wishing them all (and their mums and dads) a happy first day. 2020 was a really tough year for our children with #COVID19 causing lots of interruption and uncertainty. We still face many more challenges this year but here’s hoping 2021 will be a better year. Good luck also to all those students heading into Year 12 and their final year of school. Here’s a throwback photo of me in my Clovelly Public School uniform back when I was aged around 5. I have many fond memories of my time at Clovelly. I remember my teachers so well. Mrs Hitchings in K, Miss Gould in 1st Class and Mrs O’Connor in 2nd class.
